Locked Up Living is on a mission to challenge the silo thinking that pervades macho organisations such as the criminal justice system by covering subjects that are directly relevant but haven’t yet had enough visibility to become influential. We have featured guests tackling subjects with innovative implications for custodial settings (and other toxic organisations); several of our guests would be considered radical thinkers and we’ve covered subjects that forensic practitioners are often frightened to talk or even think about. We are particularly interested in guests whose work shines a spotlight on the challenges to those who live and work in locked environments and ways to overcome the barriers to well- being that these obstacles raise. We are especially interested in emotional literacy and health. Our podcast is popular with those researching or working in prisons and other locked or challenging environments including criminologists, psychologists, psychotherapists and other mental health professionals. This was David and Naomi’s first foray into podcasting. Started as a lockdown spare-time venture, neither has any experience of audio planning and production so we’ve had to develop skills as we go along. Several of our listeners are academics who’ve recommended our podcast to their students and the positive feedback we’ve received has encouraged us to continue beyond lockdown. We are regularly approached by people wanting to appear on the podcast to promote their work. Our weekly podcast was downloaded 14k times during the course of the year.
